(back) Subject: Re: pointing of Psalms From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Thu, 4 Nov 1999 07:12:01 -0600   I would tend to follow Bud's way of mediating on the important words (interesting turn of words - maybe I'll work that into a conversation one day).   If you find the rule, let us know what it is - as a lawyer doing this, I would tend to group the "unimportant" words (articles and prepositions) together on one tone, but it really depends upon the resultant rhythm of = the whole phrase.   When changing tones/cadence from the initial tone/note, I never have more than two syllables on one tone - is that a traditional way of pointing for Anglican chant? I know that some other forms and the more contemporary styles of chant do not follow this rule.   Regards and thanks for this discussion - it helps to reinforce what I have been doing.   More sober but still not able to speak coherently, I remain,   Glenda Sutton   ----- Original Message ----- From: Bud/Burgie <budchris@earthlink.net>   Just glancing through it, I still see the thing that I most object to, John ... the mediation or cadence beginning on an unimportant syllable. For instance, in the first verse, "counsel" and "wicked" are the important words ... if you're using a chant such as Russell in F (1940, #645) the problem is compounded by "of" being on a rising note. I would do it thus: .. . . .   I know there's a rule about when it's two plus one and when it's one plus two ( "law . of the" versus "law of . the"), but I can't remember it ... I tend to decide based on the chant I'm using. There's no help for the "LAW" (double note) in the second half, to be sure ... you can't back up all the way to "meditate" (grin).

On a recording issued by ECM (ECM New Series # 1431,distributed by = BMG as 78118-21431-2), made by Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, there are two works: "Satyagrapha", and "Dance IV"; the former is a transcription of Act III, conclusion of this work made by Michael Riesman, but the latter is composed natively for the organ.   I actually think I own a copy of a composition for Organ by Glass, published by Chester Music; unfortunately, I can't put my hands on the work at the moment, and I can't pull up a complete catalog of Chester's on the WWW yet, either.

I know that some other forms and the more contemporary >styles of chant do not follow this rule.   Unfortunately, King's College does not publish their Psalter, but from listening to them, it would seem that you can have three syllables on one note of the mediation or cadence, in which case the rhythm is treated as a very relaxed triplet:   Psalm 25:2   For all they that hope in | thee shall not . be a- | sha-med; * but such as transgress without a | cause shall . be | put to . con- | fu-sion.   THere's one problematic word that comes up quite often (I can't remember it now) where you must have four syllables on the LAST note of the mediation or cadence, but there's no help for it because anything else sounds really weird because the word has a fairly strong secondary accent ... duh, senior moment ... I can remember the properties but not the word.   Gotta go play for Mass ... we transferred All SOuls' Day to THursday (our regular weekday Mass) and All Saints' Day to Friday ... go figure.   Cheers,   Bud >

Save your money, unless you're desperately in search of a recording of some truly obscure work that can only be found in an "integrale". At any rate, Rogg's playing here certainly doesn't merit the investment in a complete set of JSB.

(back) Subject: Barnes, Audsley Stops, Bach CDs From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@pop.erols.com> Date: Thu, 04 Nov 1999 21:02:00 -0500   Dear Barnes & Audsley Book Seekers & Bach CD hunters:   Both "The Contemporary American Organ" by William H. Barnes and "Organ-Stops and Their Artistic Registration" by George Ashdown Audsley are available from OHS in softbound reprints at modest cost. Audsley's absolute "must have" 2-volume classic "The Art of Organ-Building" is also available.   Several have asked about the $59.95 set of 12 CDs of the complete Bach organ works. These are on the respected Harmonia Mundi label, recorded on the Arlsheim Silbermann by Lionel Rogg ca. 1974. They are very solid, musical, well-recorded, excellent sounding CDs of which OHS has sold literally hundreds of sets, many to organists who are looking for sort of a touchstone to learning the works. Though 25 years old now, the sound quality is remarkably fine.   Bruce Cornely wisely suggests "triangulating" on several versions of the works. In individual Bach CDs, OHS also has the Rubsam series on the Naxos label (as well as all of the Naxos organ CDs and some other "Cheap CDs" as well), the very fine Lagace series begun a couple of years ago and now including The Well-Tempered Clavier played on the organ, George Ritchie's series on the Raven label (volume 4 will soon be available), a number of other individual CDs including Canadian Marc Andre Doran's fine recording of Bach Trios, and the off-the-charts beautiful CD by Francois Espinasse of Bach Preludes and Fugues BWV 534, 535, 549; 3 Partitas and a chorale prelude, played on an Ahrend organ, alas, soon to be available no more from the maker. There are several options on an Orgelbuchlein, with and without sung chorales.   By web http://www.ohscatalog.org. By telephone 804-353-9226. By FAX 804-353-9266. By snail P. O. Box 26811, Richmond VA 23261.   Someone mentioned today having found great satisfaction in Marie-Claire Alain's most recent perusal of the complete works on the (very elusive) Erato label. (OHS does not have these available.) She has recorded the complete works at least three times, maybe more, and at least two of those were for Erato.   Bill Van Pelt

He's = evidently > an English composer, somewhere around 1850-1900.   Sir William Harris (1883-1973) was a Professor at the Royal College of Music and Organist of St. George's Chapel, Windsor. My old organ teacher was one of his pupils. One of his duties was to teach Princess Elizabeth (now the Queen) and Princess Margaret to sing madrigals, and my teacher used to get roped in to sing one of the male voices with them.   John Speller  
(back) Subject: Re: Complete JSB From: Evelyn Rowe <efrowe@mindspring.com> Date: Thu, 04 Nov 1999 23:51:50 -0500   I had the opportunity to hear Marie-Claire last week, both in concert and at a master class. She did a really rockin' Prelude & Fugue in E Minor (The Wedge) as well as Balbastre, de Grigny, Franck, and both Alains. At 73 she is quite energetic and well preserved, looks better than her publicity photo. I was amazed to find out she is quite petite, no taller than I am (5'1").   I did not volunteer to play for the master class -- a wise decision, as most of the people who did (including Eric Plutz, my current choirmaster and organ guru) were good performing artists in their own right and would have been worth hearing in their own right. We did, however, follow the French custom of finishing with informal chitchat over wine, and since Mme Alain had said a few words about the problems of people with small hands (she really has to stretch to do a 10th) I approached her about some of = the works that had been presented. Now I have some new marks in my scores as well as an autographed program. We asked her if she used a computer, and she told us she was still getting used to it but had been helped greatly = by her 20-year-old grandson -- when she thanked him for spending so much time and patience helping her, he replied that not everyone had a grandmother who could use e-mail.   Evie   At 06:08 PM 11/4/1999 -0600, Robert Horton wrote: >>Set available from OHS was recorded by Lionel Rogg on the Silbermann = Organ >>at Arlesheim. > Save your money, unless you're desperately in search of a recording >of some truly obscure work that can only be found in an "integrale". > At any rate, Rogg's playing here certainly doesn't merit the >investment in a complete set of JSB.

The first set was for the Musical Heritage Society back in the 60's, and it was the one vinyl disk of the first 4 Trio Sonatas I bought = at a 1968 concert that inspired me to attempt the Third in D minor when I was but a 4th-year organ student. The second version for Erato in the 80's = was quite different. I haven't seen the complete set at Tower Records, but I've bought other Erato recordings there. i bet Amazon.com would be able to accommodate you, too.   Evie   mailto:efrowe@mindspring.com  
(back) Subject: Re: Complete JSB From: Greg Corbett <corbettg@theatreorgans.com> Date: Thu, 04 Nov 1999 22:18:02 -0800   I purchased a set of 17 Cds (about $140.00 CDN) of, "Bach The Organ Works" by Peter Hurford, London 444 410-2.   I feel that Peter is one of the best classical organists today, I view the set as an aural reference, and a once in a life time purchase. There are 10 different organs and a span of 12 years, to compile this collection. IMHO, this is the best set & maybe the most expensive.
